Good place
A good place to work, good training and good management. Annoying part, low contracts but always overtime. Opportunities given if willing to take it on.

Negative and toxic environment
Staff were rude and horrible in the environment on my first week ,only got a day of training and left all alone for the rest with no clue how to do tasks. The staff were rude when I wasn’t sure how to prepare and the other girls were talking behind mine and other coworkers back, bare in mind it was my second shift.

Not fun.
Whilst I was working I could see that one of the managers was speaking about me and giving me dirty looks. I don’t know if it was just that branch but work with caution I guess!
